a note from our nutrition department:

       During the hot summer weather, the JFM Calf Team would like to remind all producers of heat stress strategies to assist calves in mitigating heat stress. For calves in hutches raising the back of the hutch to allow for better airflow can assist in keeping calves cool. Electrolytes during hot weather can also be beneficial in preventing heat stress. Finally, make sure calves have access to ample clean fresh water to stay hydrated. 
 
     In addition to heat stress, summer also means flies! Having a fly management strategy in place can help reduce stress for both you and your calves. The JFM Calf Team is happy to help you implement heat stress prevention and fly management strategies.
